60 Buick-Lower ball joint boots


Recommended Posts

If memory serves me right your lower ball joints do not have boots, its a rubber container (can't think of proper term) for your grease. If these are over greased they will pop, but even popped your ball joints should hold up for at least 50 thousand miles. Why were they replaced in the first place?

I got the car with 43,000 miles and no boots on the lowers. The lowers were worn, so I replaced them with a set from CARS. Those boots, not over greased, tore off in a couple weeks from insufficient clearence with the knuckle. Ordered a second set from Kanter, same thing. The joints are new, so I'll just keep 'em greased.
